Director’s note:

This hidden and surreal story immediately fascinated me because it contained the ingredients of a spy movie in a very particular setting. One of the most important historical episodes of the last 20 years had its initial chapter in a provincial Multisport Complex: this fact for me is incredible. When I met the two main characters, I understood that this story had to be told by their own points of view.
